You Are My Sunshine

Emotional Blackmail

Can Colin come out to play?

Go away it’s raining.

Whine, whine whine emotional blackmail.

Throw shoe out of window.

Is that you final answer?

No.

Wet Fizz

Wet FizzI can’t do anything today. I can’t take photographs and I can’t bring happiness to the smallest heart.

She doesn’t have a heart, she is part of the me generation. Me Me Me! That makes her my sunshine.

Today I am going to take a retrospective look at what a lovely summer it was. Starting with Butterflies. Fizz and I had a good butterfly summer. Regular readers will have seen these pictures, I took them from my media library, new readers will never even have heard of Lord Tusk (Beloved of the Faeries) either way it is just a look back at a great summer and something to do while stupido dog splashes in puddles.

We had the best of summers.

A Merry Dance

Last week I had the chance to photograph the Common Blues that I have used as the header image. Since then I have been after some open wing pictures.

I went out early to try and catch them but finding them wasn’t easy. I think that the two that I photographed are the only two in that meadow 🙂

These pictures are the best that I could get today and getting these took me two hours but I did get a few other little butterflies while I was searching for this one.

This is the female, the male will be much bluer when we get him.
